A trend currently being noticed is that blondes are covering their summer highlights. They are yearning for darker roots in the cold fall and winter weather. One model changed from blonde balayage back to darker roots. Many women are simply seeking a change that will accommodate the emotional feeling that sometimes accompany the passing of summer. Darker hair can accentuate your eyes, and may also spark a sense of new pleasure as you embark upon a new season. A gradual, subtle change in color can be addressed Be aware that a sudden, drastic change may not be what you have in mind. Initially, a subtle difference in color would be your best choice, until the desired application is achieved. The colorists at Fabio Scalia Salons in New York specialize in providing the color that is tailored to your liking and will guide you in that direction. So, scheduling a consultation for changing hair to darker roots for colder weather is a vital step that you might want to take. Darker hair seems to be in demand for colder weather Many colorists have observed that their clients are turning away from summer highlights, and changing their hair to darker roots for the colder weather. One reason might be that by the end of the summer season your hair may be bleached out and no longer compliment your complexion. Instead of radiating light (like when on a beach or walking in a park), lighter strands of hair seem to consume light, whereas dark hair tends to bring out luster, glow, and volume in the fall and winter seasons.

Is your hair turning gray? You can help with the transition in numerous subtle ways. It can be an exciting adventure to experiment with many procedures to see what is best suited to your personality and appearance. Just imagine the freedom that is derived from knowing that you may never have to dye your hair again to be attractive! There is a medley of choices that's all the rage which can easily blend in with your natural hair color. We asked our colorists for their best advice and this is what they suggested: “The changeover to gray hair color could be a tough challenge, especially if your hair is long. If a client has dark hair, adding lowlights would be a good option to consider for an easier transition. You would add your base color into the gray hair, so to break the line of demarcation between regrowth and colored hair. A client who is naturally light could stop doing a base color and just do highlights to transition. The process of becoming gray is individual and cannot be the same for all. Therefore, I highly recommend all clients to come in for a consultation. As hair turns gray when we get older, the texture also changes. Embracing not only your grays, but also the new texture, will require looking for a new hairstyle and changing your choice of products”. – Lucio Galano, Color Director, Soho Here are just a few of the most trendy ideas to get you started: Highlights is a process that gradually makes the transition easy so that the changes will not stand out like a “sore thumb.” Mixed Ash Gray Highlights add many hues, like deep brown lowlights, silver, and ash gray. Such a combination is stunning. Lowlights will gently help you ease into the transition. Gray Brown Layered Cut. See how effortlessly the hues blend in to smoothly make the transition and emerge with an attractive, dramatic combination. Gray Blonde Hair. Blending light golden blonde with ash gray hues is one of the most artful techniques that transforms your hair into a style worth admiring. Chunky Silver Highlights is as alluring as it sounds. You will turn heads with this extraordinary explosion of highlights and shadow roots.

Jennifer Aniston by Alexei Hay for Elle Magazine It used to be that when you reached a certain age you were destined for your mother's haircut. But is there such thing as an age appropriate haircut? In this week’s blog post, Fabio Scalia explains if the relation between the length of your hair and your age in number should matter. “I’m not a believer that women should shorten their hair to correspond with the number of birthdays they’ve celebrated. Your age shouldn’t be associated with the length of your hair. It’s more about your look and how you carry it. Sure, when you see a 50+ woman with hair down to her waist, all you see is probably very long hair. But it would also be very long on a young teenage girl. Instead of thinking whether your haircut is age appropriate or not, you should instead think if it’s look appropriate. Does your haircut go well with your facial features? With your personal style? With your career? There’s where I’d put my focus. A haircut is, however, a way to play with trends and a great style can make you feel up to date and current. As your hair ages, the texture, color and quality may change and those factors should be taken into consideration when cutting and coloring your hair. You can wear a beautiful dress, but if you feel uncomfortable with it, you will look ridiculous. Same goes with hair. That’s why my final suggestion is to consult with your stylist to come up with a style that will make you look and feel like the best version of yourself! Is your haircut appropriate for your look?
